This read aloud companion is written for Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. Enhance your students' comprehension of the novel by asking relevant questions and allowing them to respond in their journals. Your download comes with TWO companions in one! I've provided a companion that follows the original, unabridged version of "Sleepy Hollow". I've also provided a companion that follows the Scholastic abridged version 5th grade reading level. **PS--Check out my Sleepy Hollow Assessment here!**

How does this work?

Due to the length of the chapters, I've paired each chapter into sections. Then, I created bookmarks full of discussion questions for each section of the novel. Simply print the bookmarks on cardstock. In the top left corner, punch a hole in each bookmark and secure together with a ring. Leave this in the novel as you read and refer to it as needed. Alternately, you can print a copy of the bookmark for each student. They can use it with their personal copy of the novel and use the questions as journal prompts!

As students listen, they can also answer the discussion questions in their journal! For each section, I’ve provided 2 questions.

  • The Jump-Start Question is intended to be read BEFORE you start reading the chapters. These questions allows students to recall events from the previous chapter, make predictions, and build on previous knowledge.
  • The Sign-Off Question is to facilitate discussion AFTER reading the chapters. These questions allow students to analyze characters, summarize, sequence events, etc.

Since the unabridged version of "Sleepy Hollow" is a short story, it does not have chapter/section divisions. So I've provided that for you! On the first 2 bookmarks and first page of the journal, you will find these sections (9 total). The Scholastic abridged version is already divided into 14 chapters so I have used those chapters in that read aloud.


I love feedback! Please comment and rate this product so I can continue making the products you need!
